This volume presenting Indian science fiction cutting across the panoply of regional languages had not been published earlier.

The first Indian science fiction story is said to have been written in Bengali by Jagadish Chandra Bose and around the same time in Marathi by S. B. Ranade. Over the years science fiction had developed in other languages too, like in Tamil, but it has found strong roots in Marathi language primarily and this becomes evident in this anthology too. A comprehensive view of the trends in Indian science fiction can be obtained by going through this compilation of select stories in various Indian languages carefully culled by author-editor Bal Phond ke, who also happens to be the Director of the Publications and Information Directorate, CSIR, New Delhi.
